MSI P55-GD65 P55 Lynnfield Motherboard Review
Introduction and Specifications
Our coverage of the Intel Lynnfield processor release this fall has been pretty convincing: it is likely the best choice for a new gaming or enthusiast PC (see the Core i7-870 and Core i5-750 review as well as the Core i7-860 review). The only chipset that can be paired with the Lynnfield CPU is Intel's very own P55 offering which is available in a WIDE assortment of motherboard on the market today. Today we are going to be taking a look at one of my personal favorites in the motherboard battle, the MSI P55-GD65, that offers both performance, overclocking support and easy-to-use features like OC Genie all while coming in at a very modest price point.
